Takashi Natsume has always been shunned by those around him because of his mysterious ability to see yokai.

Since then, he's found a home with the Fujiwaras and for the first time found people he can call his friends. He's also begun to accept the existence of yokai and his unique power, forming bonds with many of them. But little does he know he's about to be dragged unwittingly into further trouble...
